The Giffoni Film Festival is organized by the Independent Association: “Ente Autonomo Giffoni Experience”, a non-profit Association that was constituted in 1973. It is co-financed by the Campania Regional Government and the Italian Ministry for Arts and Culture, supported by the Municipality of Giffoni Valle Piana.

For over 50 years the Festival has acted as a sounding board for cinema production destined for children and young people. It represents the ideal place for vivacious confrontation between filmmakers, producers and distributors and also provides a bridge between the sector’s production universe and its target audience. The Festival also aims to promote the knowledge and circulation of products of high artistic value, capable of contributing to the formation and cultural growth of a mature critical conscience in young people.


Telefilm Canada recognizes a FEATURE FILM selection in this festival and may provide assistance through the International Festival Participation Program.
